Syllabus -

The Czech Republic, in terms of geology, represents a complex region built by distinct stratigraphic and lithologic units. Distinct types of hydrogeologic environment occur there, characteristic by different hydrogeologic conditions. Modern hydrogeologic synthesis of particular regions and hydrogeologic units, extended to neighbouring European countries, is presented during the course. The leading approach is a quantitative assessment of hydrogeologic parameters (permeability, transmissivity, storativity, and porosity) and their regional distribution. Other important hydrogeologic features and properties as groundwater flow and groundwater quality are discussed as well.

The course is divided into four main parts: A. Methodological part, B. Regional part, C. Comparison of hydrogeology and hydrochemistry of different units of the Czech Republic and its relation to other European countries, D. Applied hydrogeologic issues.

Methodological part is focused on regional hydrogeologic approaches in distribution of hydraulic parameters, scale effect, regional groundwater flow, basin-wide groundwater resources assessment, hydrodynamic and hydrogeochemical zonation.

In the regional part, main types of hydrogeologic environments and the respective aquifer systems are characterised: hardrock environment (hydrogeologic massif), karst, different hydrogeologic basins (Permocarboniferous, Cretaceous, Tertiary) and Quaternary fluvial deposits.

Comparison of particular hydrogeologic units is mainly based on assessment of hydraulic parameters, similar and different features of groundwater flow and of groundwater quality.

Applied issues comprise especially examples of groundwater resources and safe yield assessment in regional scale, limits of groundwater development, major quantitative and qualitative anthropogenic impacts (overexploitation, contamination), principles of regional groundwater protection.

One of the important objectives of the course is understanding how to prepare hydrogeologic data for administrative and decision making processes regarding regional land-use planning and optimisation of natural resources development and protection.
